As illustrated on the Denver Neighborhood Seed Company seed packet shown above, Capitol Hill Cannabis indica is different than all other Colorado farm crops because of its dependence on buildings. Indoor grow rooms can be found in the basements, attics and back bedrooms of Capitol Hill buildings from Broadway to Downing Street.

Broad-leafed Capitol Hill Cannabis indica plants were introduced to Denver by beat-generation poets and later cultivated by hippies for the production of Capitol Hill People's Fair Hashish.

Pharmacologically, the plant has a higher cannabidiol content than sativa strains and creates a body buzz that is beneficial in pain relief and the treatment of insomnia. Because of the history of breeding, Capitol Hill Cannabis indica is well-suited for growing in apartment buildings named for poets, women and exotic travel destinations.

Hi Marina!

I couldn't go to the basement at Downing Street because I was Kyle's designated driver that night. Otherwise, I would probably still be down there. So cool in the summer. Also wanted to check out your drill press.

Excellent - LOL! Don't forget the most important variety - the Ken Gorman strain - named for longtime Colorado marijuana activist and Capitol Hill resident mysteriously killed after 9News "outed" him as being caregiver for more than one patient. Viva Kenny Be and Viva Ken Gorman!
